I have thoughts. You know, sometimes I think about things. There is this thing I have been thinking about for a long time. Like years. And I want someone to let me know if I have a valid thought, or if I am just nuts. I could very well be nuts.
So let's say you have a big food blog. You have lots of readers and you also have ads and you make money doing this blogging thing. What kind of recipes are you posting? Not your own? Sure, you are crediting the source, but you are making money off of their hard work and creative idea. You are merely making a recipe, taking a picture, talking about it's deliciousness and then posting the recipe. Is posting someone else's recipe and making money off of it plagiarism? Do I just have an incorrect understanding of the word "plagiarism"?
Another thought- let's say you credit the source, but make a few typos on accident or a few adaptions. What if the way you write it makes the outcome of the recipe crappy? Who does the blame go to? The person who wrote the recipe in the first place?
Am I nuts or do I have some valid thoughts?
